Girl Genius Wins! (Or, the power of Big Hats)
I hope I will be forgiven for breaking my “no posting save on Friday” rule for an issue of astounding importance: GIRL GENIUS JUST WON THE HUGO!
(And by "just" I mean it happened a month ago, and I only noticed just now.) Congratulations to Kaja and Phil Foglio! (and to the colorist, whose name is Wright. I bask in the reflected glory.)
This award was granted at the World Con in Montreal (which I also attended, thank you, with my lovely and talented wife, L. Jagi Lamplighter, whose book PROSPERO LOST had its debut there)— but I did not stay for the ceremony due to the iron necessity of the airline flight schedules, and thus was ignorant of the news.
Fortunately, a wholly accurate and illustrated account of the significant segment of the awards ceremony has been recorded for posterity. See below( Collapse )
